mmmm so I'm wondering if I should sell my car for 6, and put w/e i have in savings and buy a new car or just say **** it and turn this car into the car i've always wanted... a drift/track machine driven on the street.

my thinking is that i'm not going to be able to afford a car that is newer than mine. so it's just like hopping from older car to older car.

I think you probably keep losing money everytime you strip then remoddify your car. Just stick with one and save money. But indecisiveness just seems to come with owning an e46 or posting in sgc. Lol

Do both

Reinforce your rear subframe first.

From what I understand on exhaust, if you don't keep the correct back pressure you will lose low end power. Uuc is the only one to claim it keeps the correct back pressure.
